    • Nothing, unless you’re in elementary school. Geez. Fine artists shouldn’t be the object of such puerile humor. Grow up.

    • Mocking people for their last names is sooo passe and boring. Every time a major artist cancels due to illness, a barrage of abuse and snide remarks is unleashed. Are they not human?, Do they not get sick and suffer?. Why assume that she can’t handle the part?I think it is much better to cancel then sing and deliver substandard performance. Just think of a recent Otello fiasco at the Met when a sick tenor struggled and suffered through the opera and the audience along with him.
